The Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Violence against Children, with the support of UNICEF Innocenti, have convened a global expert’s consultation to discuss the growing impact of bullying and cyber-bullying on children.

The consultation aims to identify specific gaps and weaknesses of existing data and agree on recommendations on what type of data should be collected to support policy making and effective interventions. It will also identify essential elements of an effective policy, both at national and local level as well as areas in which specific legislation should be enacted to support a comprehensive policy to address bullying.
